Desmoglein 2 antibody | 10D2
Desmoglein 2 is a membrane glycoprotein with four highly conserved extracellular domains (EC1 - 4) and six cytoplasmic desmoglein repeat sequences. It has a predicted molecular weight of 122 kDa and an apparent molecular weight of 150 kDa, due to post translational modification. Desmoglein 2 is a core component of the desmosome cell-cell junction between cells. This protein has been identified as the autoantigen of the autoimmune skin blistering disease pemphigus vulgaris and mutations in the gene have been associated with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia.
Mouse anti Human desmoglein 2 antibody is specific for the EC1 domain of desmoglein 2 (Keim et al., 2008) and has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
